Solving the Mysteries of Devils Tower

People seem to taunt the prince of the power of the air (Ephesians 2:2) with names like Devil's Tombstone in New York, Devil's Soup Bowl in Michigan, Oregon's Devil's Punchbowl, and so on.  (Then there are sports teams.) A more interesting location is Devils Tower National Monument.

It is a sacred place to Indians, and the English name was probably a mistranslation of the Lakota. The apostrophe was dropped in the official name, but people still tend to put it in there anyway. Devils Tower is quite large, and it has baffled geologists for a long time.

Devils Tower has baffled geologists for many years. Its origin is best explained with creation science Flood geology. Also, a look those lichens,

The first big mystery is its formation, and another mystery is why it is standing there all by its lonesome. Then those huge columns that are fracturing and seen in debris at the base. If it were millions of years old, the tower should be a pile of rubble. Secularists won't like this, but geology incorporating the Genesis Flood explains a great deal of what is observed.

Lichens, two organisms in a symbiotic relationship, are at home on the rocks. They are wearing away at them, and also inviting other organisms to set up camp with them. It is amazing how the Creator has made living things that can thrive in environments that seem unfriendly at best.
Many people have seen pictures of Devils Tower or visited the site in Wyoming. Very few of the 500,000 annual visitors, though, may understand the mystery of its formation or the distinct role the global Flood played in its development.

The mystery of its formation begins with its general cone shape and a unique fracture pattern known as columnar jointing. Many lavas form hexagon-shaped columns as they cool, but none are as large as the column widths (10 feet) at Devils Tower, or as tall. The National Park Service reports, “Devils Tower is 867 feet from its base to the summit. It stands 1,267 feet above the Belle Fourche River and is 5,112 feet above sea level.”
